JGarden Description:Rinnoji is a Tendai temple. It's garden was is thought to have been built around 1648. It is a relatively large garden with a view of Mt. Nantai and an east-west oriented pond surrounded by a path. Some of the garden has been altered ove the years, but much of the original remains including rock formation on the island and a treasured five-tiered stone lantern. 




Go to the pines if you want to learn about the pine, or to the bamboo if you want to learn about the bamboo. And in doing so, you must leave your subjective preoccupation with yourself. Otherwise you impose yourself on the object and do not learn.
